ModnPods

Three Balls Red caught up with the co-founder of ModnPods, architecturally-designed and ethically crafted modular homes and offices, which are taking the nation by storm.

Congratulations on the success of ModnPods. It is such a clever concept as we really feel modular/tiny homes are the future of Australian housing. What inspired you to create ModnPods?

ModnPods was an idea i had in 2015 when I noticed housing prices started to skyrocket. I knew there had to be an alternative solution so I started my first Pod. After completing this and having the typical pain points from a start-up, I was determined to keep going. After a few years - and multiple Pods later - I said, ‘Why not create a premium architectural product using mostly Australian materials and build right here on the Gold Coast?’ I truly felt we needed to build a community of like-minded businesses and partner with local trades and suppliers. This is exactly what we did.

At ModnPods, you combine smart design with beauty and sustainability. Is this your point of difference?

Yes, that's our exact point of difference. With a commitment to softening our environmental footprint, sustainability is engrained in the business ethos and is embodied throughout the design, construction and installation. Each ModnPod is architecturally designed and manufactured to the highest standards.

Can you tell me exactly what role sustainability plays in your business?

It is so important! To limit the depletion of natural resources so we maintain an ecological balance, each product/material selected to build our ModnPods has been carefully considered. We want to ensure our suppliers are just as committed to reducing their environmental impact as we are so our materials are considered on their entire lifecycle to ensure they are either recycled, recyclable or originate from renewable sources.

I know it must be like picking a favourite child but which is your favourite Pod?

Well, our customer favourite is 100 per cent The King.My favourite has to be the new model, The Drifter. This is not the smallest of the bunch but packs a punch as it's the perfect little nook to hide away and read a book, work or simply relax. You have the same internal fit-out options within the Drifter as you do with The Pass and The King. Meaning, you can put a full kitchen and bathroom, with enough space for a queen bed or sofa to relax.

What are you most proud of?

Seeing the customer reaction when we deliver each Pod - that never gets old. This takes us back to the ModnPods team and how dedicated they are to making sure each Pod is built to perfection. We owe it all to them! Also, we are proud of who we are affiliated with, whether it's the material suppliers or companies like Three Balls Red, who help style each Pod. Each ModnPod is made up of 90 per cent Australian materials and 70 per cent of those are fully recyclable. We prioritise suppliers who are located closest to our manufacturing base on the Gold Coast to help reduce the embodied energy of each ModnPod. Not only does this soften our environmental footprint, it has the added benefit of supporting our local community to create a more sustainable business environment. We see this as the way forward for the future of doing business more efficiently and sustainably.

What is next for ModnPods?

We are moving to a larger factory within the Gold Coast as we have outgrown the one we are in. This was a proud moment for us but the most important thing is our team and the culture we have created. We believe if you take care of the house first, the rest will fall into place. This culture reflects in each Pod we deliver and every customer experience.
